Egypt says case of Italian student's murder to be closed temporarily

CAIRO (Reuters) - Egypt's public prosecutor said on Monday the person who killed Italian student Giulio Regeni in Cairo in 2016 was still unknown, and the organisation's file on the murder would be temporarily closed.

Investigative authorities will continue the search for the killer, according to a statement that the prosecutor said was made jointly with Italian authorities.
